    Anybody else getting this “World Cup promo” pop-up on the M6G site? I’ve only had it happen on mobile. Will take a screenshot next time it comes up

    I keep getting a promotion award that either takes me to some Amazon page or something else. Figured it was related to that big naked fat man that is the 6G header promotion of the month.

    Since this thread was moved can we get a response from the mods as to why M6G has more intrusive pop-up ads than a porn site.

    We're looking into this as it's likely an ad hack. We certainly would not allow any ads that operate like this.

    I absolutely hate that Amazon pop-up scammer crap...

    Does anyone else know of a way to block that crap? I have ad blockers on our devices (Apple) and somehow that type of pop-up seems to circumvent the blocker.

    The only way to “rid it” is the user has to clear all browser history... but then hope they don’t hit another damn site with such scripted BS.

    Any ideas?
